Feyenoord veteran Van Persie: Spurs and Pochettino are great

Feyenoord veteran Robin van Persie can't pick a winner for Ajax's Champions League semifinal against Tottenham.

The former Arsenal captain admits he's a big fan of Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.

"It's great what Tottenham does," he told De Telegraaf.

“I hear that the players have to train hard. It's even worse than under Jürgen Klopp at Liverpool.

“But I wish them both the best. Of course I think it's great what Ajax does in Europe. I think Matthijs de Ligt is very good, nineteen years old, strong and also good on the ball."
